    i dont do the 0 thing, but C operands...yeah, sometimes. != is a very convenient thing to write/type...its much more annoying to try to get...ok i cant find it on US international keyboard with AltGr, but the = with a slash through it

    Cool Re: You know you're a geek when........

    Sometimes I can't have a conversation with regular mortals because all that is going through my brain is if the update is ready for the new Compiz-Fusion yet.

    Or how many beans I can get on the forums tonight.

    Put the baby to sleep earlier and earlier just to get more time on my laptop. Is it wrong to put a baby to bed at 3 in the afternoon?
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Re: You know you're a geek when........

    It starts getting freaky when :
    someone asks you how many people approximately can attend the concert and you answer "about 512",
    your baby brother starts counting 00,01,10,11.. because of severe brainwashing ,
    when your best friend's name is sth like heavenz2145,
    when "grep name" is the only way to make you call the person named "name"
    when you feel sick and type dmesg to check up
    when you don't wan to go out with your friends because you've kust got your ubuntu cd and want to try it out..
    when your launcher for sudo poff is named "Finally disconnect and get a life"
    when your cds/dvds of linux/unix distros than music or movies cds/dvds
    when you go on an island for vacations,take your laptop with you and complain about not having wi-fi spot
    when you know all of your hardware specifications by hardware and be surprised to hear your friend doesn't know his graphic card memory.
    when you say "Linux is an a[p]titude" and really think is a joke.
    Those that can,do.Those that can't,complain!

    When you buy a pair of converse all-stars with the intent to cover them in pseudo-code just to confuse people.
    When a mugger attacks you and you tell him he won't be able to get past your damage reduction.
    When you start referring to a certain part of your (or a male friends) anatomy as a "+3 spear".
    When you need to be reminded that some close friends cant get online when they are not at uni (damn dial up!) and that phoning is a better idea than emailing.
    When you start saying RL even in real conversation.
    When you decide it would be a good idea to write a program for your morning routine so you can get up later and another for the evening routine so you don't interrupt important coding or gaming for supper.
    When you consider how hard it would be to write a bot to talk to your friends online for you.
    When you put off sex for online gaming (and your partner doesn't mind because she is gaming too).
    When your non-geek partner starts telling geek jokes (geekitus is contagious).
    When you would rather install a program on Linux than on Windows because you know the errors will be solvable and that you might learn something.
    When you stay inside gaming so long people wonder if you are an albino.
    When you worry that freshers week coincides with the next Ubuntu release.

    You talk with your friends online like this

    echo 'Hey how ya doing';
    instead of just Hey how ya doing...

    Or you feel the need to use <br /> tags instead of just hitting enter

    You find yourself “adding quotes” around things for no reason

    You ask a question and automatically type ?> instead of just ?

    you write notes to four friends like this

    Code:
    <?php
    $to = 'Jeni';
    $from = 'Heather';
    echo date("F j, Y");
    echo "<br /><br />Dear $to, <br />";
    echo "How are you doing these days? <br />";
    echo "<br />With Love,<br /> $from";
    ?>
    Code:
      if($coding >= $good_sex)
    {
    $you = 'nerd';
    }
